hoping someone can help me out here, i'm pretty sure i've got cystitis, haven't had it before, but have unpleasant burning sensation when urinate, and i had a lot of sex this weekend [not seen partner for 3 months....] - am i right that this can be a causal factor in cystitis?
anyway. i also managed on saturday night to forget to take my pill for the first time ever [ironic], but have since taken emergency contraception. this week is my pill free week, so i'm due a period, which leads into my next query- i am either getting my period or have blood in my urine. and can't work out which!
if it's the latter, should i be concerned? or just put it down to vaginal soreness following a lot of intercourse?
another problem is that i can't get to a doctor until friday, and i don't know if there's anything i can do to combat the cystitis without a prescription - is there?
hope someone can give me a hand here, any advice, and if anything needs clarifying...i'll try!


- you think you're the only one who's sexually frustrated?
- well come on baby , i'm ready!

Blood in you urine could indicate a kidney infection, which could be quite serious. I'd advise getting to a doctor or clinic ASAP, and I really do mean that. Until then, drink lot of water, and cranberry juice (unsweetened) or take cranberry capsules, and avoid sexual contact and using anything but the mildest soap, if you use soap at all, in that area.
